The classy Manu Tuilagi gesture you might have missed

All England and Sale Sharks would have been delighted to see Manu Tuilagi make his comeback on Sunday and come away unscathed in a 36-14 win over Harlequins at the Stoop.

Making his first appearance since limping off the Twickenham turf with a hamstring injury against South Africa in November, the centre made his impact felt with some bruising hits.

However, while is exploits on the field were well documented, many may have missed what he did after the match. Fortunately, BT Sport have footage of the 2013 British & Irish Lion staying out on the pitch for 20 minutes after the game talking to fans, signing autographs and taking selfies. This classy gesture is just an example of what a superstar the Sale man is.

Take a look:

Despite making his comeback, Tuilagi was still not included in England’s 36-man squad to take on Italy this weekend. Joe Launchbury, who recently returned from injury as well, and London Irish’s Tom Pearson were included in Eddie Jones’ squad.
